2016 CFASI Fund Management Challenge


The SL UNIGE Investments Team from University of Genova won the 2016 edition of CFASI Fund Management Challenge.

“This competition,” the winning team stated, “was an excellent opportunity to put our skills into practice in a financial setting, and to more fully understand what it means to really manage a portfolio. We were actually able to appreciate the difficulties and the risks regularly faced in this field. It was also an opportunity to work as a team to develop our investment strategy. We would like to thank the entire staff and volunteers of the CFA Society Italy who allowed us to participate, and we hope that the initiative will continue for many years to come, so that other young people can have the opportunity to compete in this challenge.”

Congratulations to the SL UNIGE Investments Team - Duino Schiappapietra, Simona Lagomarsino, Mattia Gavini, Lucia Lasagna, Alex Sapuppo - and to their university professors Barbara Alemanni and Francesca Querci.

The teams from University of Modena and Reggio Emilia and the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Milano won second and third place respectively.

CFA Society Italy Fund Management Challenge offers graduate-level students an opportunity to apply the art of institutional equity portfolio management in a realistic simulation. It teaches them to invest, as opposed to trade, and emphasises the importance of ethics and professionalism in the financial industry.
